You can watch Martha’s full November 4, 2017 recital right here!

If you’d like to follow along, here are PDFs of the recital program and the song translations.

The program begins with 3 Italian songs by Vincenzo Bellini.  If you prefer German, fast forward to 7:30 for three art songs by Johannes Brahms.  The Rachmaninoff Vocalise begins at 16:12.  Music by French composer Francis Poulenc makes pianist Lurray Myers and I feel like kids in a candy store…. Airs Chantés begins at 21:50.  Guitarist Joseph Shields joins me for Manuel de Falla’s Siete Canciones Populares Españolas at 29:54.  Martha talks about and sings Rex Willis’ original composition, Fortuna starting at 45:02. (Spoiler Alert:  Martha wrote the lyrics!)

In October 2016, I was thrilled to sing a concert in Sheboygan, Wisconsin of my friend’s compositions.  The concert was later broadcast on Wisconsin public television.  You can watch the concert by clicking the link below!
